Skype for Business -- Invite a user (Stout or external) to a Skype meeting

How to host and invite an external user to a Skype for Business meeting

You can host Skype meetings and have conversations with both internal and external (non-Stout) users.

  1. Log into the Office 365 Outlook Web App (OWA)
  2. Open Calendar from the App Launcher (Office 365)
    App Launcher

  3. Click "New" to create a new appointment
  4. Click "Skype meeting"
    New Skype Meeting

  5. Add the user’s email address (you don’t need their Skype username) under “People” on the right.
    Add People

  6. Fill in meeting details
  7. Click “Send”

The recipient receives the email invitation, clicks the included link, and can join as a “guest” after they are prompted to install an add-on. We encourage users to practice this process once or twice prior to an actual meeting to ensure the event goes smoothly.
